iOS 15.3 Public Beta 1 brings bug fixes and improvements

No features in the first public beta of iOS 15.3

Apple has now seeded the first public beta of iOS 15.3 bringing no new features but simply “bug fixes and improvements”.

After the wealth of features that arrived in iOS 15.2, it’s no real surprise that this release will be focused on cleaning up bugs. 

Whether Apple will add new features in subsequent betas is anyone’s guess.
